The IPO market cooled with just one small IPO last week, joined by a SPAC. The pipeline also saw little activity, with two IPOs and three SPACs submitting initial filings.

Based in Singapore JE Cleantech Holdings (JCSE) raised $15 million at a market cap of $60 million. The company manufactures a wide range of cleaning equipment and systems, and also provides warewashing and cleaning services in Singapore. JE Cleantech became the latest microcap to soar on its debut, following Genius Group’s (GNS) massive pop the previous week; the company ended up 375%.

Acquisition of Yotta (YOTAU) was the only SPAC to hit the market, raising $100 million to target high-tech industries. Blank check issuance has been on a steady decline since the start of the year, due to weak post-merger returns, which prompted a wave of merger terminations and withdrawals from SPAC’s IPOs.
